Poor room ventilation

Good location, well-trained hostel staff, clean
Strategically located near CBD. Hotel staff must make sure all rooms are well-ventilated especially big rooms. Stuffy if sharing room with quite a number of people with aircon off and windows shut. However giving credit to all hostel staff, very helpful.

1.Close to everything in cbd. 2.great n helpful staff. 3. Great facilities
I had a wonderful 5 nights there. Great kitchenette to cook. Great n helpful staff who always clean the place. Just that sometimes some people who stayed there don't know how to take care the cleanliness. Had a wonderful stay n mix around with others who stayed there.

Good facilities & in the heart of Adelaide

kitchen and living area were huge, good staff
Good things: Huge kitchen and common room Enough bathrooms and hot water Not super busy Central location Staff were friendly Strange things: Must people seemed to be long term renters when I was here, including one man who I can only assume was actually homeless. I booked a private room, but got an empty dorm
